Auch das beste Automobil-TV-Magazin der Welt, Top Gear kommt nicht an Olympia vorbei und hat eine Sondersendung produziert: Top Gear Winter Olympics mit Skispringen, Eisschnellaufen, Eishockey und Biathlon.
This week on Top Gear we took to the snowy mountains of Lillehammer, Norway, home to the 1994 Winter Olympics. Our aim was to host our very own games, but to replace the humans with humans in cars. There would also be some shouting of the word ‘power’ and quite a lot of driving sideways.
Ski jumping is remarkable. People with seemingly no will to carry on living, launch themselves down a slope at speeds approaching 60mph to jump enormous distances, with no brakes whatsoever.
Top Gear was keen not to be remembered as another Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards, so Jeremy wouldn’t be donning any skis.
